Indomie Warung Stall
This stall at HWKR is dedicated to Indomie mie goreng.
March 08, 2019
Melbourne's rotating Asian market HWKR has revealed its next pop-up concept — and, boy, is it a good'un. The team has joined forces with Australia's favourite instant noodle brand Indomie to bring Melburnians the Jakarta-inspired Warung Stall.
The menu is 'pimp mie goreng' themed, so Indomie's classic instant noodles will be used as the base for the dishes — but they definitely don't resemble what you would cook up at home at 2am. Expect mie goreng with fried chicken ribs, telur balado (chilli sauced egg), anchovies and peanuts; spicy mie goreng with Balinese beef, tofu, shrimp crackers and sambal; and corned beef and egg-topped noodles.
There are also a few noodle soups on offer, like the curry chicken version with corn fritters, or the fried chicken ribs option with egg, Asian greens and homemade cabe ijo (pickled green chilli paste). If you're just after a snack, you can grab an egg-stuffed martabak (that is, a savoury crepe), mie goreng-dusted potato crisps and a chicken and potato pastel jadul — a street snack that resembles an empanada.
Large dishes range from $10.50–13.50, and snacks are around $7–8. The menu is completely halal, vegetarian-friendly and some dishes can be made vegan, too. If you get in quick, Indomie is also giving out 100 vintage tote bags with any order. Best hop to it.
The stall is open daily from 11.30am–10pm and until 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
